    Default Don't catch this chicken...

    There's a new trojan arriving "within MSN instant messaging sessions". Which means it can eventually move into other "Instant Messaging" systems like AIM and ICQ, etc.

    It has to be opened on your desktop, so just *getting it* won't infect you - it has to be OPENED. It promises sexy images but is a cooked chicken with bikini lines. (Check link to just see the pic. )

    "The worm, which also disables anti-virus software and manipulates audio sounds on an infected machine, is capable of logging and reporting keystrokes, relaying spam and harvesting credit card numbers and other sensitive passwords.

    In an online advisory, Panda Software said the worm spreads itself by sending a link via IM urging recipients to download one of the following files: "Drunk_lol.pif"; "Webcam_004.pif"; "sexy_bedroom.pif"; "naked_party.pif"; or "love_me.pif." "

    If you have teens, particularly boys, teach them not to open files from unknown users in IM, too.

    THANKS for the heads up, Cat. I just sent my 14yo grandson an email -- your message cut and pasted in it. Darn, if he's not at THAT AGE !!!

    Thanks for the heads-up, Cat!

    I don't know if it's an AOL thing (always blame AOL LOL), but I had to copy and paste the url because all that showed up from your link was http://www.eweek.com/article2/0 not http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1760261,00.asp
